Clark Layton: Smooth Blowfish with American Holly
Product Number: 002-781-0001
Though heavily influenced by Premal Chheda, American pipemaker Clark Layton's aesthetic stylistically runs the gamut, as he fashions shapes of a directly classic disposition as well as those more organically-inclined fellows, like this handsome Blowfish. Clark's attention to detail is undeniable, as the implied motion imbued by the linework's balanced asymmetry extends all the way into the delicate, leftward curve of the stem, further accentuating the piece's organic disposition. In tandem with that, a path of plateau on the left flank offers a stimulating bit of texture as well as a neat contrast to the defined grain and crisp linework on the stummel. Palette-wise, Clark opted for a vibrant orange contrast stain paired to pale, off-white holly at the stem base, making for a pleasant change in tone while maintaining warmth.
